Texans | Earl Mitchell adds weight

Houston Texans DT Earl Mitchell has bulked up to 308 pounds this offseason after playing at 287 pounds last season. He said he added to weight to be able to take on double teams more effectively at a nose tackle. "I just focused on knowing what I needed to do and just kind of the battles that I was going through, knowing that I needed to weigh a little bit more just to withstand those double teams in playing nose tackle. I thought that this was going to be a big year for me, so I approached it very seriously and pretty much just wanted to hit it with a full head of steam to build off of how I was playing in the latter part of the season," Mitchell said.
